Spice Up Your Cooking with Delicious Char Crust Dry-Rub Seasonings! (GIVEAWAY)

I’ve written before that I am not a huge fan of cooking. So, anything I make has to be quick and easy! That’s why I love the dry-rub seasonings from Char Crust. They contain premium herb blends, spices and other natural ingredients that can be rubbed onto uncooked meat (beef, poultry, pork, lamb…) or fish before cooking, or sprinkled over raw vegetables and broiled, baked, grilled, pan-seared, roasted, or sautéed. They are available in nine amazing varieties:

Original Hickory Grilled
Roasted Garlic Peppercorn
All American BBQ
Ginger Teriyaki
Smoky Spicy Southwest
Amazin' Cajun
Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic
Hickory Molasses
Roto Roast

My favorite of the four is the Ginger Teriyaki, although I loved all the flavors I tried! My husband and older son really enjoyed the All American BBQ because it’s quite spicy! They love spicy food. As you can see in the photos below, it was a breeze to prepare dinner with the Char Crust dry-rub seasonings. We just washed up some chicken and coated the pieces with the Char Crust dry-rub seasoning …


Then we baked it in the oven and it came out looking like this!


Delicious! We had an extremely tasty dinner, and it was SO easy to prepare! Here’s another delicious recipe idea from Char Crust:

Pan-Seared Tilapia

Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: about 20 minutes

 
Ingredients:
Tilapia fillets -- about 6 oz per person
Char Crust® Amazin’ Cajun -- about 1/2 Tbsp per fillet
A little oil, canola is good
A little butter (optional), at room temperature

Heat a cast iron pan on the stove until very hot. Season one side of the fish with Char Crust® Amazin’ Cajun Dry Rub Seasoning, generously covering the surface. Drizzle a little oil all over the seasonings, using your fingers to rub in and distribute evenly. Seasonings will look moist and darken a bit. Place the fish, seasoned side down, into the pan. It should sizzle immediately, and you may get some smoke. Cook a few minutes until just cooked through. Transfer to plate with seasoned side up and place pat of butter on top.

Option: We actually prefer this recipe with catfish, but tilapia seems to have more fans.

I’m a huge fan now of Char Crust seasonings! We’re really going to enjoy using them when we barbecue this summer! I hope you’ll check out Char Crust at www.charcrust.com and pick up some at the store.
